5.0 out of 5 stars If you own a Wii, you should own this game. September 22, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game, and deserves far more credit than it is getting. I own both Rock Band 1 and 2 for Wii as well, and LOVED both of those games far more than any previous entry in the Guitar Hero series. This newest iteration however, is really something special, ESPECIALLY if you play on Wii. Here are some great things about this game:

On ALL Consoles:
*Soundtrack: Several reviews have bashed the soundtrack for this game, and I really don't understand why. The song selection is GREAT. Granted, I imported all of the available songs from Guitar Hero: World Tour and Smash Hits, so maybe that improves the setlist... and I also have lots of downloadable songs. But, that said, the tracks on the disk are great. Please, before you take these reviews at face value, check out the track listing for this game... there are some really great songs. Granted, I honestly do like the Rock Band 2 track list better (but I have over 150 downloadable songs in Rock Band 2... and honestly, several songs that are on GH5 are also on Rock Band...)... so just check out the setlist for yourself before you judge this game!!!

*Party Play Mode - This is a REALLY great feature, and with some tweaking in future games, could be AMAZING. Essentially, as soon as the game starts up, rather than selecting a game mode, selecting a song, players, etc... you click one of the fret buttons and are launched directly into whatever song is playing in the background. You can select a rocker, etc... but are essentially launched directly into playing a song! If you don't like the song, you can opt to skip to the next or another song. The gameplay mechanic for Party Play mode is IDEAL for parties (DUH!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, DIVERSE track listing!! September 14, 2009
By B. Sli
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm only about a quarter thru the game so far, and I love it. The track listing is far superior to other games - they've pulled older (meaning early 2000s, 90s, 80s, etc.) songs that I actually recognize, which is a HUGE plus. Love the format and the new multi-player features.

The only complaint I have so far is that where you're at as far as star power is kind of hard to determine, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Me - I'm a 31-year old married woman that isn't a die-hard GH player - I have yet to get past Medium - but I have fun with it. But I do like this game, and think that others in a similar mindset will think the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK but September 14, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Guitar Hero 5 Stand Alone Software song list is comprised of classic rock, heavy metal as well as some contemporary hits. I was disappointed with their previous release, Guitar Hero Smash Hits, the songs were compiled from previous GH games. Guitar Hero 5 to me is just is another disappointment. Sure there are some new features such as Party Play and Rockfest mode where you can play min-games against your friends, but I like playing the game for it's songs.

One good thing however is that all the songs are available to play from the beginning so no need to unlock any songs. Graphics are still pretty much the same with some new venues, but nothing to blow you out of your seat. Game play has a few changes which I believe makes it much more user-friendly. Star power is individual and the note buttons look a little bigger in single play mode. I do like how one player can pause their instrument and the game continues for the other players and how you can switch instruments and difficulties at any moment. Everyone can also chose to play the same instrument instead of fighting who plays what.

You can also import songs from both Guitar Hero World Tour and Smash Hits, that is if you don't already own them like I do, which then makes it a waste of your time. At least Acitvision is seeing the importance of the downloadable media library and I believe they will continue to improve on this. There were also changes made, but I guess I was expecting something "new" from Activision for Guitar Hero, but sadly this is just another GH game with a few little tweaks. You will be pleased with the new interface changes but if you enjoy playing the games for it's song list, you will be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but it's no Rockband 2 December 16, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fun, my girlfriend and I played it for a few hours, and we haven't touched it since. Meanwhile we are still playing Rockband 2 almost every weekend and I've owned that for most of a year.

GH5 has some good songs, there are some challenges which were lacking from GH Metallica and GH Van Halen and other games. It takes an hour or so to unlock all the songs and play all the venues, but longer for all the challenges. It has some of the same songs as RB2, but the notes are different so it's not boring, and I like how GH uses a lot of notes after a sustained note, that is much more realistic. I also much prefer the GH guitar over the RB2 guitar. At first the clicking of the strumming drove me nuts, but now I live by it and use that guitar in RB2. I also like how there are more hardness settings and the transition from one setting isn't as jarring, like it is in RB2 where Easy and Medium are complete cake and I could get 100%, but then Hard on some of the same songs would result in me failing after the first 30 second with maybe 6%.

However, there are some drawbacks. For starters, it's hard for me to tell which notes need to be strummed and and which do not as the notes look almost exactly the same and the graphics are a lot smaller that in RB2, and I have better that 20/20 vision. In fact, the graphics are so small that my girlfriend had to move the drum set much closer to the TV in order to see the notes coming. It's a 53" TV, by the way, expertly calibrated and converged, not some small, blurry set. She got so frustrated with it that she didn't want to play anymore, and I haven't put the game back in since, and that was about 2 months ago.
